Prunus avium 'Hudson'

Hudson finishes up the season with a bang! This very firm, sweet, dark red, crack and rot resistant cherry extends the cherry harvest for two weeks or more. Introduced in 1935 by the NY Experiment Station, we have reintroduced it for its outstanding flavor, productivity and late season. On Gisela 5 rootstock.

Gisela 5 is a dwarfing rootstock, 50% of standard size, that induces heavy early fruit production. Trees can be maintained at 10 to 12 feet tall. Gisela 5 is more forgiving of shallow soils and a better choice than the even more dwarfing Gisela 3 for people with enough room for this somewhat larger tree.

USDA Zone: 5-9

Grow Height: 12' (Dwarf)

Sun: Full Sun

Ripening Time: July

Pollination: Needs a Pollinizer

Ask a Question
  • What type and how many pollinoses trees are needed when planting 6-10 Hudson trees?

    Most any other sweet cherry will do. For 10 trees you should plant 1-2 trees of another variety to ensure sufficent pollen. 1:10 is the minimum ratio for sweet cherries.

  • When are the Hudson trees available?

    Please use the "Notify Me When Available" button to be emailed when they are available for pre-order.

  • What are the chill hours for this variety?

    800+ chill hours

  • Based on the Cherry Growing Guide, Hudson ripens late. But, what is the Blooming time? We get late frost (late March- early April) and no matter how good the tree is we never get any fruit (some years we get some). Could you please also add a Blooming Chart as you do for Apples and Pears? All PNW nurseries put Stella (early) and Hudson (or Sweetheart ) on the same blooming season and we (backyard growers) always get confused.

    Typically sweet cherries (Prunus avium) all bloom within the same time period and without concerns like late frosts and unseasonable rain there is rarely a problem with cross pollination.
